As far as I understood Bojan this is no longer an issue. If he tries to 
prepare 1.4.x head for release there are no warnings and that is the 
code we are going to release.

In case we wonder why there are no warnings for head but there are 
warnings for 1.4.5: see CHANGES:

*) Silence autoconf 2.68 warnings. [Rainer Jung]

in the 1.4.6 block.

The change was 
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1125474, svn log was

Silence autoconf 2.68 warnings.

in apr_common.m4.

Backport of r1125472 from trunk
resp. r1125473 from 1.5.x.

There is no analogous change for apr-util, but as far as I remember 
those warnings did not exist for apr-util. Bojan please correct me if 
your experience is different.

Regards and happy RMing
